Cave Canem Residency
The Rose O’Neill Literary House partners with Cave Canem to provide a month-long residency in historic Chestertown, Maryland annually to one Cave Canem Fellow. Cave Canem’s mission is to serve as “a home for the many voices of African American poetry and is committed to cultivating the artistic and professional growth of African American poets.”
The Cave Canem Residency at The Rose O’Neill Literary House includes a public reading as part of the annual Summer Poetry Salon Series. The Fellow is awarded the use of a private, single-family residence for the entire month of June, along with a $1000 honorarium for living expenses.
Cave Canem Fellows interested in applying for a residency may visit the Cave Canem website for guidelines and additional information.
